Hi there! An h1 tag is how we demonstrate the importance of a piece of text and give it meaning. It is an abbreviation for "headline level 1" meaning of highest importance. You can find documentation concerning the heading elements from MDN here.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

edited for additional hint

Take a close look at the slash in your closing tag. It's leaning the wrong way. Try </h1> :thumbsup:
